Impotence Causes and Treatment

For a large num­ber of men, sus­tain­ing an erec­tion has noth­ing to do with attrac­tion. Some men expe­ri­ence an inabil­i­ty to sus­tain an erec­tion due to a health con­di­tion known as impo­tence, oth­er­wise called erec­tile dys­func­tion. Impo­tence is not the same thing as being ster­ile, or ejac­u­la­tion prob­lems, though a lack of erec­tion can cause these to be prob­lems as well. Impo­tence is not always a com­plete lack of erec­tion. It some­times can be just an occa­sion­al prob­lem, or even just a prob­lem keep­ing an erec­tion once it is got­ten.

Impo­tence is most often caused by a phys­i­cal prob­lem, and it is often con­nect­ed to the blood trav­el­ling to the penis. As a per­son ages, their odds of expe­ri­enc­ing impo­tence increas­es. In spite of this, some men nev­er expe­ri­ence impo­tence. It can be treat­ed regard­less of age, and these med­ical advances has men enjoy­ing sex for a much longer peri­od of time into their old age.

Com­mon caus­es of impo­tence are dia­betes, vas­cu­lar dis­ease, heart dis­ease, depres­sion, anx­i­ety, high blood pres­sure, and even some med­ica­tions cause impo­tence as a side effect. What used to be a taboo sub­ject, even at the doctor’s office has now become very com­mon fare even in the pub­lic view. Not many men will suf­fer in silence with erec­tile dys­func­tion any longer. There are too many treat­ments out there that can fix impo­tence.

Some peo­ple suf­fer with impo­tence that is pri­mar­i­ly psy­cho­log­i­cal­ly based. They expe­ri­ence high lev­els of anx­i­ety when they are faced with inter­course. This can often be treat­ed with psy­chol­o­gy, rather than med­i­cine, and the treat­ment is gen­er­al­ly very effec­tive.

Often when the impo­tence prob­lem is psy­cho­log­i­cal­ly based, it is a bit tougher to solve. Many times the doc­tor will get the patients sex­u­al part­ner to help with the treat­ment. By slow­ing down, and mak­ing the stim­u­la­tion slow­er and more relaxed, this type of impo­tence can be over­come. Many men that suf­fer this type of impo­tence have suf­fered with it since they were fair­ly young. It is a very frus­trat­ing source of shame for the patient in many cas­es. This can lead the patient to not seek help for their erec­tile dys­func­tion until they grow old­er and begin to mature.

There are a num­ber of oth­er treat­ments for impo­tence out there includ­ing vac­cum ther­a­py, oral med­ica­tions, and even surgery. Each of these treat­ments are effec­tive in most sit­u­a­tions and only your doc­tor can tell you which route is the right one for you and your erec­tile dys­func­tion. Some com­mon pop­u­lar drugs to treat impo­tence include Via­gra, and Cialis. These drugs are avail­able through your doc­tor and have been giv­ing mens health a huge boost.

Though erec­tile dys­func­tion is quite com­mon, it is not a prob­lem that you should ever suf­fer through with­out seek­ing help. The treat­ments these days are high­ly effec­tive and the ben­e­fits are a rich and vibrant sex life once again with your part­ner.
